WLU in brief: Nov. 30, 2011


Stairs near FNCC under construction

Over the weekend work began to replace the outdoor staircase beside the Fred Nichols Campus Centre.

“[The stairs] were in very bad shape, it was getting to be a tripping hazard, and it would’ve been particularly dangerous in the winter months,” said Mark Dettweiler, director of planning, design and contruction at WLU.

“It got to the point where would either have to close them off for the winter or repair them, and we chose to repair them.”

According to Dettweiler, the university is hopeful the project will be finished within a month. However he also mentioned that weather at this time of year could cause delays.
